Speaking Truth to Power: Dr. Jud Newborn Recounts The White Rose Resistance Movement
Following his 10am Hornstein Lecture at the
Isaac M. Wise Temple, Dr. Jud Newborn will join Hillel students at 12:30 pm for an informal interactive presentation and discussion, recounting how college students Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans - former fanatical
Hitler Youth leaders - transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance.
"We will not be silent." their wartime leaflets declared. "We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!"
Relating the White Rose story to today's most compelling current events, Newborn then presents an array of "White Rosers" today - inspiring heroes of all backgrounds, abroad and at home - who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.
Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Paula@hillelcincinnati.org or 513-221-6728
This event is open to the public. We encourage you to spread the word to your fellow students and faculty at UC.
